Yesterday I was flipping through the channels when I saw the gals discussing Janet Napolitano's new "Homeland security codes" on the View. Now it seems instead of the Green thru Red color codes we're just going to have two codes: "Elevated" and "Imminent." (Or, as Whoopi Goldberg said, "Run!" and "Faster!!!"
What a joke! It's like what Avops wrote on his/her blog: "Repeat after me..........mankind is doomed.......mankind is doomed..........mankind is doomed......" Gloom, Despair and Agony On Me!
Buck up, people! We've been through worse than this! Here's something inspirational: tea partiers in Wisconsin telling Sarah Palin to GO HOME!
I know I'm always going on about this, but it's going to factor more and more in your life the more "unstable" the world gets. There will soon come a time when money won't be able to buy you out your problems ... but a disciplined mind and a loving heart will be able to move mountains (they already can, but this will be made much more apparent in the months to come).
... at war in Afghanistan? * ... at war in Iraq? ** ... holding prisoners at Guantanamo Bay? ... talking about Sarah Palin? ... suffering confessed war criminals like Dick "I authorized water-boarding" Cheney? ... suffering the loss of our civil rights under the Patriot Act? ... using fossil fuels? ... pretending the system is still functional when we only have two "viable" parties and they're both utterly corrupt and we are still ... deciding elections using crooked voting machines? ... paying taxes?
* I thought the point was to capture Osama bin Laden. If that was really the point, don't you think we'd have caught him by now? ** I thought the point was regime change due to Saddam Husein's "Weapons of Mass Destruction." Well, it turns out there weren't any weapons of mass destruction but we got our regime change anyway. Yet we're still spending billions on war in Iraq. http://www.infoplease.com/ipa/A0933935.html
This is where I come to vent and blather about what they don't seem to talk about in the mainstream news. I've written quite a few articles in the past (mostly on Portland Indymedia) and I'll try to include my favorites on here as well, when time allows. I also like to talk about ideas and solutions as to what we can do about the mess our planet is in. Check out my radio work, too.
I believe it's up to each and every one of us to contribute our own special talents to make this world a better place for all of us.
I used to volunteer for KRFP, a great community radio station in Moscow, Idaho. I have over 50 radio commentaries (including scripts) posted elsewhere on the internet. Check them out by searching under my name at http://radio4all.net!
Grandfather, look at our brokenness. We know that in all creation only the human family has strayed from the sacred way. We know that we are the ones who are divided and we are the ones who must come back together to walk in the sacred way. Grandfather, sacred one, teach us love, compassion, and honor that we may heal the earth and heal each other.
